Housing choices to improve in Christchurch central city

Christchurch City Council is moving to accelerate residential growth in the central city.

The Council is proposing to launch a new programme, called Project 8011, which is aimed at unlocking residential development to help boost the number of people living in the central city from the current 6000 to 20,000 people by 2028.

A report detailing Project 8011 and how it will work has been considered by Council’s Strategic Capability Committee this week.

The report provides an outline of Project 8011 and the immediate, three-year work programme. This will help achieve a number of long-term goals for the central city including more people, more choice of housing, liveable neighbourhoods, and encouraging, supporting and accelerating the delivery of the required homes.
